Comfortable seating, a fridge, and a flush toilet ensure you’ll have an enjoyable day on the water. Powered by twin 200 HP Yamaha engines, the boat has plenty of power to reach the best fishing spots quickly!

Equipped with the latest Garmin electronics, including a fishfinder, GPS, and radar, you’ll have no trouble finding the most productive fishing grounds. Capt. Mark will have you trolling with bait and a variety of artificial lures to target Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Pink and Chum Salmon. When in season, you’ll also drop crab traps to target great tasting Dungeness Crab.

At the end of your trip, your captain will clean and fillet your catch for you. Just bring a suitable ice box to keep it fresh during your journey home.
During the day, you’ll want your own drinks and snacks to stay refreshed while you enjoy the stunning west coast views. Let FishOnAdventures.com give you an unforgettable experience!

I have grown up fishing on the west coast. Fishing for Cutthroat Trout in local creeks became fly fishing for Steelhead and Salmon in local rivers to eventually mooching and trolling for Salmon in the local waters. Always planning for the next fishing trip, I have a passion for being on the water and sharing the experience with others.
